PODCAST: New wind turbines are for the birds
Engineers place more powerful wind turbines further apart, but still can’t save the birds
Wind turbines in the Altamont Pass in California have killed thousands of Golden Eagles, and even more songbirds. But we’ve come a long way since they were first installed. In this podcast, I speak to wildlife biologist Todd Katzner, bird conservationist Michael Hutchins and wind energy researcher Robert Preus about how wind technology is improving and how it might affect birds.
